DEXA Scan

A DEXA (dual energy x-ray absorptiometry) scan is a safe, low-dose radiation method for determining bone density. During a DEXA scan, two x-ray beams are emitted: one with a high energy level and one with a low energy level. The difference between these two beams helps the radiologist determine your bone density, which is key in diagnosing osteoporosis.
